Thankful Thursday...

I saw on another blog over the weekend a couple of Thankful Thursday, and I think it is a wonderful idea for a post. I have so much to be thankful for and seldom do I stop and think about all I have been given. So here goes my first Thankful Thursday post (I hope to do several of them leading up to Thanksgiving).

I am thankful that this little girl was so good at the doctor last week (she didn't even cry during a blood draw)!

I am even more thankful that her diabetes test results came back negative! We do have to change her diet a little bit but nothing major!

I am thankful that these two are best friends. When we lost Jeret I was scared that Colten would not have a close bond with his other siblings. Boy was I wrong. I am so thankful that God blessed us with two beautiful children so close in age, and while Aubrey is not Colten's twin I am beyond thankful that they are so close!

I am thankful that Colten does so well with his shots, and we do not feel like we are torturing him every night!

I am thankful for my wonderful husband! I could not ask for a better husband, and daddy!

Finally I am thankful that tomorrow is FRIDAY, and we have the weekend to spend together as a family, celebrating a this sweet little girl's first birthday!

Wedding Fun...

We attended a wedding this past weekend, and the kids had a LOT of fun dancing, and being in their "fancy clothes"! It was a great night, however I failed at getting a cute picture of both kids! Oh well...there is always next time!

Gabby Time...

My children have been VERY spoiled lately and have gotten to spend lots of time with Gabby! Gabby is Colten's girlfriend, and both my kids are obsessed with her! They are always talking about her, and wondering when they get to see her again. I love how they have a friend like this at such an early age. A few weeks ago we went to Gabby's house for her sister's birthday party and they are STILL talking about it today. After that we were lucky to see Gabby again here in town and the kids had a wonderful time playing at the park. Colten tells all his friends at school that he has the prettiest girlfriend, it is to sweet for words.
Here is Miss Aubrey on the Princess Bike at the birthday party.

The kids were obsessed with the wagon and took MANY turns pulling each other!

Aubrey had fun on the swings too! Scarecrow Colten!

Scarecrow Aubrey!
More fun with the wagon...we have one at home and do you think they have ANY interest in that one?

Decorating was a beautiful fall day!

Here is Colten with Gabby's sister at the "sonic park". Both my kids love this park and I like it because it is fenced in, and they can not run everywhere!

All the kids at the park! What a fun day we had!

Fall Ball...

The K-State baseball team is finishing up their fall ball this weekend with what they call the world series. The kids and I ventured over to Toition Family Stadium last night and had a good time. I am not ready for baseball season to start any time soon however one night since May is doable. The kids loved it but I have a feeling it is going to be MUCH harder to keep them entertained in the suite this year! I feel bad trying to make them stay in there but I am so scared of them being hit with foul balls! As you can see I struck out with them staying inside last least it was a beautiful night!

I love that they are best friends. Colten LOVES to help Aubrey!

I see you guys!

He is so perfect!

Mother Teresa...

I am in the horrible habit of saying Mother Teresa in front of the kids instead of using the profanity word that I am thinking! Why it works, and stops the kids from repeating me they have now picked up my bad habit. Aubrey is constantly saying it when she hurts herself, or is mad about something. I guess at least she isn't saying the F word!

October 15th...

October 15th is National Pregnancy and Infant Loss Remembrance Day, so I thought I would share a picture of the boy I am remembering yesterday, today, tomorrow, and every day after that. May you rest in peace Jeret Lee. We miss you so much but our lives are better because of you!

iPhoto Booth...

I recently discovered the iPhoto Booth on our Mac and we had LOTS of fun with it the other night! The kids enjoyed taking pictures of themselves and I think they are adorable so thought I would share. I still have LOTS to learn about the photo options on here but am very excited to try and figure it all out!
He LOVED taking pictures of himself!
Aren't they precious?
Mama's girl! I love her facial expression!
Trying to make her be serious! Much easier said than done.
Kisses for mama!
The boys kissing their girl...she just wanted to make a silly face.
Daddy with his girl!
Silly faces!
A kiss from daddy!
Now Colten's turn for a kiss!

Time for another silly face!

Let's Go Cats...

Colten was ready to cheer on the Cat's this morning, and was not very happy when we told him the game wasn't until tonight!
